Since 2007, the G360 Institute for Groundwater Research has been a leader in research and innovation for global groundwater protection, contaminant removal, and water supply management. Today, we are excited to announce the next big step in realizing the Institute’s mission.
A generous $10 million gift from Edward (Ted) Morwick will enable significant capital improvements to the Bedrock Aquifer Field Facility – to be renamed the Morwick Groundwater Research Centre – making it a state-of-the-art facility for teaching and research. The gift also creates a new endowed Chair in Sustainable Groundwater Research at the University of Guelph. Finally, it will support the training of the next generation of water and climate change researchers through student research assistantships. Together, these initiatives will lay the groundwork for a bright future in global water research.
In recognition of this transformative donation, the G360 Institute for Groundwater Research will be renamed the Morwick G360 Groundwater Research Institute. To read the full press release and learn more, visit https://www.uoguelph.ca/ceps/water-protection
